I know, we haven’t really been putting in a “Hike of the Month” of late. We can blame it on the grandkids. At ages 3 ½ and 1 ½, they just aren’t that great at hiking. But for Father’s Day I wanted to take a hike. So Lori, I and son Keegan visited Castlewood Canyon State Park and went on about a six-mile hike.

Castlewood Canyon State Park is located five miles south of Franktown, or eight miles north of grandbabies. It has 15 different trails ranging from “easy” to “difficult” and .14 miles to 2.14 miles. All told there are about 12 miles of trails.

Nine of the trails are hiking only and the park is made up of 2,634 acres in the Black Forest area. At many points in the hike you get great views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak.
